The law regarding obtaining a permit to purchase a handgun has not changed.
To obtain a permit to purchase a handgun you must apply at the Sheriff's Office Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 4:20 p.m. You must be 21 years of age, a resident of Rice County and have a Minnesota driver's license confirming your Rice County address. The permit will be processed within seven days from the time you apply. The criminal history of each applicant is checked. A record of conviction for certain crimes will be cause for denial of a permit.
